As the Democrats continue their quest to impeach President Donald Trump on high crimes and misdemeanors, the supposed victim of said crimes is (once more) telling the press that…no crime was ever committed. In an interview with TIME magazine this week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that whatever issues there were with U.S. military aid, they did not involve any pressure from President Trump to provide “something for something.”
“Look,” he said, “I never talked to the President from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing. I don’t want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand. We’re at war. If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”
Not long ago, Zelensky told German magazine Der Spiegel the same thing: “I did not speak with U.S. President Trump in those terms: You give me this, I give you that.”
On Twitter, President Trump said that Zelensky’s statements should put the matter to bed.
“Breaking News: The President of Ukraine has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls. If the Radical Left Democrats were sane, which they are not, it would be case over!” wrote Trump on Monday.
This impeachment inquiry isn’t just an investigation in search of a crime, it’s an investigation in search of a victim! At least with the Mueller deal, you had the DNC claiming that Russia had hacked into their servers. You had Hillary whining about how Putin and the Trump campaign conspired to steal the election away from her. That allegation turned out not to be true, but at least there was a claim of victimhood. In this one, the very person who was supposed to have been victimized by President Trump’s unlawful behavior – he says it never happened!
How silly can this thing get?!
At this point, only the Democrats – who want Trump out of the way so that one of their losers can win in 2020 – and these Deep State officials – who want Trump out of the way so they can get back to their idiotic version of foreign policy – claim that any crime was committed here. Is that really enough to throw a president out of office? Let’s hope not, or our system is forever broken.
